The Worshipful Company of Gunmakers


Event Details


Since 1675, the Worshipful Company of Gunmakers has been located just outside Aldgate and the old walls of the City of London, i.e., it is the only Livery Company sited outside the City walls.  The Company operates the Proof House, which has statutory powers to test and regulate the safety of firearms.

Under the provisions of the Gun Barrel Proof Act, all guns sold in the United Kingdom must undergo proof to test the basic soundness of barrel and action.  Together with the Birmingham Gun Barrel Proof House, the London Proof House provides proofing and other services to the British gun trade.  The Proof Master may also be requested to investigate accidental gun and barrel failures.

The visit will include an introduction to the Company, a tour of the Workshop by the Proof Master and a three course lunch in the Court Room.  The price is £95 per person.
